i'm not going to lie and say she was perfect.her skin was spotted with what she passed off as freckles,Whyles
but what were really scars from a thousand summer suns
as she ran about outside,
climbing trees and treading rivers,
pretending to be an american bomber
in the midst of WWII.
she kept crimson stains on pearl pink lips,
which always had the habit of getting on her teeth
because she put on make-up after dressing in her car
and ordering coffee in every way she hated it
as she drove to the record store three times a day,
ignoring her job downtown.
she owned four and a half hairbrushes exactly,
i took count on the first night i stepped into that whirl-wind room,
though her lopsided up-dos of messy blonde hair revealed just how much her fingers
never broke the dust.
she had these lovely fragile hands
that showed each and every vein and bone,
the type of hands made for tearing boys like me apart.
how could i have even expected to survive,
a paper poet
held against a reckless flame?
dyslexia awarness journal - EDITI am dyslexic. Many people suffer from dyslexia but very few, not even those who do have it, understand it. There are all sort of misconceptions about it, and because of that it goes unoticed in many people.aPPlejaZZ
Most recently, I've been feeling the pressure from people who are not dyslexic and do not understand it. I have been going to Japanese lessons with 2 of the people who live in my town and one of them in particular makes it sound as if I'm not trying hard enough because they are advancing much faster than me, and I've been in Japan for 3 years.
It's very hurtful because, althought they know I have it, they don't care to understand it. My disability is not in people's faces. I don't 'look' dyslexic because there is no such thing, so people, and this one in particular, think it is not a big issue.
It's a massive issue! It plays in every part of my life. I'm frustrated with this people so I don't feel like learning anymore, anything. I feel stupid and incapable. I fee
Oh wow...I've been blatantly asked to buy something in a Japanese doll shop by someone I don't know because 'you live there' they said. Really now... just wow.... some people in this hobby. There are people out there who charge for that kind of service, I'm not gonna be doing that for free for people i never talked to.aPPlejaZZ
About them Brain Abnormalitieshttp://www.theblaze.com/stories/2014/09/11/a-woman-reached-the-age-of-24-and-no-one-realized-she-was-missing-a-large-part-of-a-vital-organ/SionnaDehr
This lady in China's been reported to be completely missing her cerebellum, the part of her brain that controls smooth motor movements. It has 10% of the brain's mass, but contains 50% of the brain's neurons.
This woman is 24 years old. She learned to talk, she learned to walk, she had a normal, to term, pregnancy, she's married, and she lived her entire life with this particular brain abnormality.
And researchers are excited since, because this thing is so rare, they get the rare opportunity to research this certain disease or birth defect. If her parents aborted or left her in a dumpster (which they're allowed to do in China in situations like this) they never would have been able to take this brilliant opportunity.
Yes I'm bringing this up because of this: http://chicksontheright.com/posts/item/26426-speaking-of-wendy-davi
My Most Embarrassing Moment + Commission UpdateStill one more BJD portrait commission slot: http://rodianangel.deviantart.com/journal/Rodya-s-2nd-Birthday-And-Commission-Info-481016878RodianAngel
OK! Now, on to business--
I wrote this in February but sent off my only copy on a flash drive to my best friend and only just got it back. I thought I'd post it here, since it's BJD related and sort of fantastic. Also, I would like to point out that my memory for dialogue is pretty flawless and I wrote this barely a half hour after it happened, so all the dialogue is exact. No exaggerations or anything.
And here we go--
“My Most Embarrassing Moment.”
I was thrilled with my idea for Emolly’s Valentine’s Day card! Considering how much she loves Prosper and all, and wishes I would post lots of scandalous muscle pictures of him online, I decided to take a coup
Finally, Some Sanity From Tumblr!As I’ve previously showcased within my This Week In Internet Social Justice posts (yes, yes, I know I haven’t updated them in forever), Tumblr is the cesspool of the internet where feminist diarrhea floats within social justice piss and statist vomit, festering into a disease-ridden sludge of cultural Marxism gross enough to make any human being’s nose hairs burst into flame.BlameThe1st
But if you dare to plunge your hand into the pool and fish around long enough, if your arm hasn’t dissolved into bone, you could very well pull from out of the sewage a diamond ring that was accidently flushed down the toilet.
Here’s one such gem where a young woman bravely confronts the feminist horde and tells them right to their grease-ridden faces that they do not speak for her:I am so beyond tired of people claiming to have my best interests at heart trying to t
